About Me

Hi, I’m Lucia and you’ve probably guessed by my name I’m Italian. Correct!

Although I was born in Italy I grew up in the UK and I am now based in Harwich, a lovely seaside town in Essex.

Let me tell you my story. I have over 30 years of travel experience. I have worked for a tour operator, an airline  (BA), a cruise company (P and O), business travel, travel agent. For a brief period I was a wedding and honeymoon specialist, one of my favourite jobs. I have lived in Spain and in Italy so speak Italian and some Spanish. I have been travelling since I was 2, when my parents bought me to the UK and haven’t stopped since. I have travelled most parts of the world, I have tried counting how many countries but fell asleep at 100. I am always being asked where is my favourite place and that’s difficult to answer because I love so many places but if I had to name 3 I guess Hayman Island Australia, Cinque Terre, Italy, and The Caribbean.

Wherever you want to go in the world whether it’s Bermuda or Bognor (I’ve been to both) please give me a call and you will get the same service. Every detail will be taken care of for you. Just give me a call on 07956 076667 or send me an email If you want to browse through some of my offers please go to Designer Travel with Lucia Campanella on Facebook

Hard Rock Tenerife – an ideal winter break

In search of a few days in the sun last November, we decided on the Hard Rock Tenerife. Reading the weather forecasts before we went, it was not looking good, rain every day. However on arrival the sun was shining and stayed that way for the 5 days we were

Verona, a night at the opera
Posted On:  03/08/2017

Verona, one of my favourite Italian cities. Even though I had been there 4 times previously when it was time to organise my yearly girlie trip, I decided to Verona would be a good choice. There are many reasons why I love Verona, one being it's a short flight from...

Venice Trip

This is the first time we have booked a trip via an agent for almost 25 years. How easy did Lucia make it? Very! Lovely friendly service and great recommendations. I don’t think we’d use anyone else for a trip to Italy. Thoughtful touches and great communication. We would happily...
